Player News
Jake Arrieta awaits what he hopes is last rehab start
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:58 pm ET) Right-hander Jake Arrieta is slated for another rehab start Monday for Class-A Daytona, which he hopes will be his final tuneup before joining the Cubs.

Arrieta made three rehab starts with Double-A Tennessee, but the team has "demoted" him so he can pitch in warmer weather. He is planning on throwing about 100 pitches in his upcoming outing.


Manny Machado will continue rehab Monday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:43 pm ET) Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is off Sunday, according to MLB.com.

Machado's day off was scheduled as part of his rehab. He will return to the field Monday and play seven innings. He's working his way back from a knee injury.


Delino DeShiedls out with fractured cheekbone
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:28 pm ET) Astros infield prospect Delino DeShields will be out for some time with a fractured cheekbone, according to MLB.com.

DeShields was hit in the face with a 90 mph fastball Friday night. The fracture is non-displaced. He was one of the team's late cuts during camp.


Sean Burnett tosses 'impressive' bullpen
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:25 pm ET) Angels reliever Sean Burnett tossed an "impressive" bullpen recently, according to the Orange County Register

Burnett is recovering from elbow swelling, and is attempting to get back to the majors. Manager Mike Scioscia came away from the session impressed with Burnett's performance. He's expected to remain out until at least early May.


Reds bring Sean Marshall up, send Curtis Partch down
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:21 pm ET) The Reds have activated relief pitcher Sean Marshall off the disabled list after a rehab stint and returned fellow right-hander Curtis Partch back to Triple-A Louisville.

Marshall has been out all season with a shoulder injury that also cost him most of 2013. He had been a productive member of the bullpen for the Cubs and Reds for several years before losing time to the injury.


Bruce Chen in the lineup Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:18 pm ET) Royals pitcher Bruce Chen will make his scheduled start Saturday.

Chen was considered questionable entering the game due to a glute injury. The club shuffled their rotation around to make sure Chen would be able to pitch this week. He received a few extra days in order to be ready for the start.


David Robertson says he's ready to go
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:14 pm ET) Yankees reliever David Robertson says he's ready to go, according to the LoHud Yankees Blog.

Robertson recorded four outs during an extended spring training game Saturday. He gave up one single and had one strikeout. Following the appearance, Robertson said he's good to go. Robertson has been trying to come back from a groin injury.


Tommy Hanson moved to Triple-A
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:10 pm ET) White Sox pitcher Tommy Hanson has made his way to Triple-A, according to the Chicago Sun-Times

Hanson signed with the club, but was pitching in extended spring training in order to build his strength. He'll likely need a few starts before the team considers bringing him up to the majors. 


Report: Andre Rienzo coming back to the majors
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12:05 pm ET) White Sox pitcher Andre Rienzo will be called up to the majors, according to his Facebook page.

Rienzo announced the news on Facebook, which was translated to say he was called up, and would pitch in the next few days. Rienzo said he doesn't know how long he'll be up. He will likely replace Felipe Paulino in the rotation. Paulino has struggled early, and complained of some soreness following Friday's game. 


Albert Pujols dealing with bone bruise in heel
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11:51 am ET) Angels first baseman Albert Pujols is dealing with a bone bruise in his left heel, according to the Los Angeles Times

Pujols has been dealing with the injury since the first week of the season, and it's not expected to be serious. He's hitting .279, with five homeruns this year.
